Many have done blogs indicating what successive pounds lost look like, creating clearcut visual imagery, including myself sometime back. Some images included dog food bags (about 25 pounds) and another (my favorite!), an elephant's penis (one of the ones I included, about 60 pounds) to indicate what those pounds lost could represent. But this morning I was awestruck by a picture that was taken just two years ago, and one the following year that showed a 20-pound loss exactly. I honestly didn't think 20 pounds would show all that much. I was terribly wrong. See a "before" at 234.8 lbs. taken in April, 2010 and an "after" in March, 2011, at 214 lbs. If you ever wonder what a 20-pound loss would look like, keep these photos in mind, and remember to take many yourself. If you look on the weight tab on your SP weight tracker, you can track back to the date of the photos to verify the actual weight for that date as I did. Astound yourself. I'm still astounded this morning.
